Children from Year 5 at Broadclyst Community Primary School took on the challenge of re-enacting a famous day in history when they performed The Forestry Conundrum in the house and grounds of National Trust Killerton on the 13th and 14th of June. The pupils recreated a day after WW1 when Killerton House waited impatiently for the return of Lord Acland, news about his Forestry Commission Bill and whether it passed in Parliament.
Performances took place at 10:00am and 4:00pm on both days and the children performed brilliantly, bringing the historical day to life in every occasion. Both morning performances the children had to contend with heavy downpours and were able to enthral the audiences that came to watch despite the difficult conditions. The afternoon performances were both lucky to have sunshine and the weather was glorious on the Friday afternoon as everyone stayed afterwards in the beautiful grounds of Killerton for a cream tea.
A big thank you to Crispins of Bradninch who very kindly lent a vintage car, free of charge, to add authenticity and drama to the performances.
